Fairy Pools, Glen Brittle.

The Fairy Pools are a natural waterfall phenomenon in Glen Brittle, on the Allt Coir' a' Mhadaidh rivier on the Isle of Skye.
Located near the village of Carbost on the Isle of Skye, visitors can embark on a stunning walk from Glen Brittle towards the Fairy Pools.
The Fairy Pools is a popular hotspot for photographers and walkers, and is one of the most magical places in Scotland. The water in the River Brittle and the pools is so clear, perfect for any adventurous swimmers who dare themselves to enter the icy waters.

Visitors can make the 2.4km walk to the pools by from the car park up the rising gravel path towards the Black Cuillins, the water source for the river Brittle. Along the route bordered with grass, heather, peat and rocks, eventually you can stop and admire the largest waterfall that marks the location of the Fairy Pools, or walk further up the path and explore some of the smaller pools that lie ahead.

A lovely walk and deceptively hard on the legs on the last section back to the car,but well worth it.
